Feeding the Calf

Feeding the Calf

Whether from the suckler herd or the dairy herd, a good start is essential for calves. Chapter 36 in the Teagasc Beef Manual calf-nutrition (.pdf, 308kb) gives clear guidelines on the nutritional needs of the suckler and artificially reared calf.

Chapter 37 feeding-weanlings (.pdf, 164kb) gives targets and nutritional guidelines for older beef cattle.
